Summit got off to great start as Finbar McCormick nailed three straight 3 pointers and Malcolm Sidebottom added 2 treys, Eric Baier added 4 points and Summit ended the quarter ahead 19-8. GL showed they too could play the 3 point game as they answered with 6 3's in the 1st half and closed to 32-27 at the half..
GL came out strong in the 3rd and briefly tied the score 40 all. However, 7 points by Baier and a trey by Lusardy allowed Summit to start the final quarter with a 7 point lead. GL was not about to give up. With 2 minutes left GL cut the lead to 53-50, a 3 by Sidebottom and a free throw McCormick maintained the 4 point lead at the end.
